    Arron you'll soon learn that Steve F is a closet hommo sexual. What he is actually tying to say is that he likes 12 inches in his rear

    best of luck

    Had thought about a 328 - to be honest though the prices I have seen are almost up there with 348's now - besides, I just prefer the look of the 348.

    Arron,

    The idea of hiring sounds like a good one.

    My Mondy is not in the same league as a 348/355, but it is an 8 cylinder Ferrari. I do not think you will be dissapointed driving a 348 (though I cannot speak from direct experience).

    I had decided I wanted a Mondial after I went out with the owner of one (who was selling) just as a passenger, maybe that is an option too.

    As has been said if you buy from a reputable dealer then they should fix and problems afterwards. I did not have that luxury and although had many electrical gremlins have no regrets.

    For what its worth I think you should buy the best you can for your money, which in this case IMHO means a 348.

    I one day will own a 355. Will get a 348 first, but I know if it takes me 10 piggin years I will love every day of F ownership. It is I believe unique
